Jane Anson awarded the wine 93 points, commenting that the 2019 “continues the run of good vintages that Talbot has been producing since 2016.” James Suckling scored the wine slightly higher, 94-95. Jean-Marc Quarin awarded 92.

Today’s release comes out as the second cheapest vintage available on the market and potentially one of the highest scored. The least expensive is 2017, which lies at a large discount to similarly scored wines, although does carry significantly less bottle age.
The wines of Talbot have a 65% correlation between price and age, making today’s release look of good value for the long-term buyer.
